Letterpress Zine Making with Shawn Collins
SUN 8/19
10am – 4pm
$150 (includes all materials)

A collaborative zinemaking workshop where students will compose their own content, make design decisions for the arrangement and flow of the zine, and finally produce it on the letterpress. Students will be provided with a formatted template (six page zine folded from one 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper). Within this format, students will collaborate on ideas to combine their original content, dividing up the pages of the zine however they see fit. We will print on both Vandercooks, using one for text type and one for color display type/images. The printing process will involve teaching students how to prepare the presses, set type, and register on the press bed.
